C&IM SD20s Reposing at Yanda


There are four former Chicago & Illinois Midland SD-20s working their way to LTEX. Last Sunday afternoon I did a few photos of them over at Yanda in Youngstown.

All were, of course, nose coupled but once they are in LTEX there won’t be much chance of getting them.

All started life as Southern Railway SD24s. The Illinois Central Gulf rebuilt them as SD20s.

That’s CSX Q375 passing them in the top photograph.

Two of the units still had the original C&IM logo on the rear of the long hood.

Yet another photo shows one of the unit’s recent history in layers of stickers.
